Two new shows will be screened on the Turkish channel TRT, as well as on a Greek channel. One of the shows will be a 13-episode production entitled “Journey to the Aegean”, the filming of which will take place mainly in the Aegean Sea and is expected to begin on September 10 in Istanbul.
According to the online edition of the newspaper Zaman, the idea for the show came from Mary Ekmeksioglu, a chef who met Erdal Murat Aktaş, director of the Turkish films “Mumya Firarda” and “Kirpi”, and decided that they should cooperate on a project.
“I met Mary at a restaurant in Turkey where she lives. She knows the cultures of both countries very well. I told her about a project I had in mind and I agreed to cooperate with her once she told me about her own ideas,” Aktas commented, explaining how the idea for production began.
As Murat Aktaş stated, ‘The show will have not only impressive shots, but Greek and Turkish celebrities as well who will speak about their experiences and moments of Greek-Turkish friendship.”
